    I wash bike and dry it, then coat bike in acf 50, let it creep over the bike and leave for a bit,then buff up the bike. When it's dry I use a wax to seal everything up. Comes up a treat.

    Do you cover all the bike with acf50? No matter if they are plastic parts or cables?
    Also what about breaking discs? Do you clean them as well with the acf50? Mine have a little rust which i would like to remove but i am quite careful on products i use on my brakes.

    I have done my wood burner flue with it the last two years and it prevents the weather streaks from appearing as they used to.

    On everything except the brakes and tyres, obviously. It doesn't do any damage.

    Other than in the insert parts of the discs I've not had a problem with the discs. For the insert bits I put ACF50 on a clothes and just rub it in.

    Just ride the bike. That'll take care of rusty discs. It's normal for any discs with iron in them to go rusty when not used for a while, and often quite quickly after getting wet.

    Soapy water and a rinse to get ride of the braking debris 'n crud, a little brake cleaner spray to outside of calipers as long as they're anodised and not painted and discs (not to pistons as it'll destroy the rubber seals), a dry off and you're done.

    The engine casings on mine are gloss black and if you spray them with any lubricant (ACF 50/WD40) the finish is not so good as it dulls and smears on the gloss finish. I saw a Dyna with the engine cases absolutely gleaming I asked the owner how he achieved this and he stated Mr Sheen furniture polish. It works an absolute treat.
